1 PV GRID Stockholm Jan Olof Dalenbäck Svensk solenergi Reducing barriers hampering large scale integration of PV electricity into the distribution GRID 1 IEE PROJECT Carried out by 21 project partners, covering 17 EU Member States Coordinated by BSW Solar Countries involved: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, the Netherlands, UK Project is funded by the European Commission under the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme Duration: 30 months (May 2012 Oct 2014) PV GRID: Countries covered 2 9/03/ WORKFLOW Svensk solenergi active in WP2 and WP4 WP1: Management Advisory Committee Project Meetings WP3: PV GRID Discussion Working Groups & Recommendations WG 1 WG 2 Solutions WG 3 Barriers WP2: Research & Barriers PV LEGAL database WP4: EU & national Dissemination EU events Proposals National workshops National forums Publications 3 9/03/

3 DSO investment recovery Guidance on a European level could foster the transformation of national schemes into more smart grid oriented frameworks. National regulators should adjust DSOs investment and cost recovery schemes so as to encourage the investments needed for the decentralisation of the system and the roll out of technical solutions for PV grid integration and other smart grid investments. 7 9/03/ Network codes and standards The revision of the standard on technical requirements for connection and operation of microgenerators and their protection devices up to and including 16A should be accelerated. Technical specifications for connection and operation of micro generators and their protection devices above 16A should be turned into standards. 8 9/03/ Curtailment RES Directive (2009/28/EC) does not allow DSOs to curtail PV electricity for distribution grid planning and/or managing purposes, only for system security and security of supply reasons. The annuitized savings in avoided investments from curtailment should be larger than the compensation paid to the PV agent. Otherwise the network should be expanded. 9 9/03/

4 Self consumption / Storage A favourable regulatory framework should be created, stimulating PV electricity self consumption to contribute to network operation (reducing peaks).. self consumtion not yet allowed in some countries. There should be established mechanisms for supporting prosumer storage solutions, when these are applied to reduce the peaks of PV installations.. storage is not yet allowed in all countries. 10 9/03/ DSO access to PV inverter DSOs should be provided access to advanced PV inverter capabilities and boundary conditions for the selected technical solutions should be defined by the competent national authority. Mechanisms to avoid conflict of interests with the TSOs and energy providers shall be put in place. 11 9/03/ DSO storage Within each national regulatory framework, given the network operation benefits that can be made available by DSO storage, there should be a reflection on how to activate this potential. 12 9/03/

5 Demand response Market model neutral enabling factors, such as the communication between DSO and final customers, can and should be defined as soon as possible. DSOs should be allowed to manage load reduction and activation services in order to fully utilise any demandside management potential. 13 9/03/ Smart meters / Smart grids Mandatory introduction of intelligent metering systems should be assessed carefully. Is the required intelligent infrastructure only viable with large scale PV installations? National regulators should discuss with all relevant stakeholders the adaptation of national regulatory frameworks (avoiding frequent changes) in order to concretely promote smart grid investments. 14 9/03/ Thank you for your attention Jan Olof Dalenbäck Svensk solenergi Disclaimer: The sole responsibility for the content of this presentation lies with the authors.
